We call this the coffee shop dress here because it reminds me (Betsy) of uniforms worn in coffee shops and delis for many years. I even went to one in mid-town New York City where the waitresses wore these as late as 1997! We thought of them as old-fashioned when I was a little girl in the 60's. Perfect for Maryellen!
Be sure to add some shoes I offer to go with this adorable dress at Lovvbugg! White shoes will be perfect for a coffee shop waitress!
